Keep developing… no matter what

E-mail Print PDF

 

As we are moving towards the end of the year we can reflect on some great training events, launches, opening of new fire stations, and more successful graduates that are now working in the service.

An ongoing point of concern however is the continuation of EMS short courses and the survival of colleges that offer these courses. Our Emergency feature in this edition will elaboarate more on this, but for us to develop employees, the short courses are needed. You can’t afford to send them away for a year or two, in terms of time and money. Municipalities and communities require BAAs to provide basic health services.

The impact will be felt by the community that requires our help, they will be the ultimate ones suffering. We have provided comment on this and the challenges that this will bring with, and that regulations and quality control are the way to go here. With the short courses that can be taken away any moment, we need to work on personal development and career development and make use of all opportunities available.

In 2015, on top of the Interschutz that will be held in June, locally we will have our SAESI Conference, Exhibition, and Training event at Nasrec, that promises to be bigger and better. To sponsors, municipalities, private sector, these events cost us a lot and we are doing it for you, for your development, entertainment, and exposure. We will even have attempts at Guinness World Records as relating to the EMS, so you better get yourself in shape and ready for the challenges.

Let’s continue to develop and grow no matter how trying the circumstances. Give your best this holiday season and stand proud as a lifesaver, no matter how trying the circumstances. Keep a positive outlook and remember why you are doing this… for the people.

Enforce standards no matter what

E-mail Print PDF

ofentse masibiThe inspection of night clubs has always been part of the Fire Services and we need to do this properly to save lives and to implement the law.

Due the workload and in an attempt to balance social and work life I once went to a night club in town and I found it to be clean and all in order, but the fire standards according to the act was not being adhered to properly, placing many lives in danger. Legislation have changed, with government focused on poverty and job creation, but we as fire institute should still be implementing these standards and uphold the name of the EMS industry. Nightclubs is a big problem as it is a crowded building with little or no precautions in place should a fire break out, stampedes and deaths due to this is nothing new, which is why we should put our focus on this.

Early warning devices should be installed in clubs that can get people moving quickly, many a disaster was made worse by lack of intercom or proper communication system. Buildings in general should adhere to regulations and incidents like Tongaat is very upsetting and we shouldn’t be compromising on safety. When a hotel that caught fire recently it came out that it never met the fire standards but it was still being used irrespective of the concerns that were raised by fire service. This should be dealt with properly and not swept under the rug for the safety of the citizens of our country.
